I got a message at CoG last winter about the disgusting abuse being tossed around this site in the mean girls locker room, and I went to check it, not believing that it could in fact be as loathsome as indicated. I figured that a place like that could only benefit from my distributing sweetness and light, so I leaped into the discord at the height of the most recent rancor between the sites in January.
Serving as ambassador, ensuring that there is no miscommunication, I was content to be an example of a CoGite, to answer questions and defuse conflict.

I want to hear about the Arkham games that you bought immediately *after* the sale.

I dunno, he says, "I’ve read about 80% of Hosted and Choice of games." Sounds like a super fan to me!

No, every single game there is crap and overpriced, and there is nothing you want. I wouldn't even bother looking at anything on Steam. Total waste of time.

Yes, the example as you have it paragraphs perfectly well. The paragraph break creates the timing beat that you are going for there. Grammar-wise, you are in the clear there. The action does not need to be tied to the dialogue in the same paragraph.
But here is one thing to note:
"I know how my father feels," said the girl. "But I also know how you feel....
If you intend that all as one sentence, and I think you do, the second clause has to have a lower case letter after the dialogue attribution.
"I know how my father feels," said the girl. "but I also know how you feel....

I'm not convinced that locking yourself in that bunker with those people means you aren't going to die.

I have learned from Ogre's mistake to contest these charges loudly and clearly as quickly as possible.
In fact, I used to look concerned and sort of pedantic before I came to this forum at which point my profile picture *became* diabolical.
Or, to put it in the local vernacular,
Im good , but this site ......... made me evil !
